Study with esteemed American guest artists
PRISMA is currently accepting US-based students for FREE online masterclasses June 21-25
(Application fee $25)


Here's one final reminder about an exciting opportunity from PRISMA!

Later this month, we are excited to be offering virtual masterclasses for string students based in the United States, alongside pre-selected string players from British Columbia, Canada. This program is made possible by a grant from the United States Department of State.

From June 21 to 25 PRISMA will be hosting 11 FREE online sessions for violin, viola, cello and bass. Our Guest Artists are esteemed soloists, educators, and members of some of America's finest orchestras. Learn more about them below.

If you are a string student residing in the US who would like to audition for a spot in one of these masterclasses please apply via Acceptd and submit a short audition video.

Participant space is limited to 8 violinists, 4 violists, 6 cellists and 4 bassists. The application deadline is tomorrow – June 5, 2021. All applicants who are not given a spot in the masterclasses are welcome to be observers. Video links will be sent to you.

Application fee for participants: $25 USD. This fee is non-refundable. Click here to apply and audition for a spot.

OBSERVERS WELCOME! If you are interested in simply observing a masterclass (no application or audition is required for this) please contact and we will send you the link at no cost. All ages and countries are encouraged to observe.
